FINAL INFO for DU meet up, today, Sunday Sept 23, 6 PM. Tyler's Taproom. Durham

It is supposed to be kind of cool - but if it feels warm enough, will see if a table outside works...otherwise, ask at the front for the Craig party.....assuming we will get between 6-10 of us, will be there at the start (6 PM, or maybe a few min. earlier). I will put a further response.kick to this post once I get there to specify our location in the place.


Important information so we can get an idea of numbers! Thanks!

I have no idea if it's still baseball season! But when there's a game, getting to American Tobacco Campus is tough.

Thanks for organizing. Will update sooner to the event.

16. I have to work sunday. I pretty much always have to work.

Why tyler's btw? It's not the coolest place in town. I get that it's right off 147, but go 1/2 mile further and there are much better places.. like the federal.

Raleigh! Next time, anyone else can try.....(sorry for the snark, but...herding cats indeed!)

23. I always have to work so I don't get a say; but the few times I've been in tyler's it was less than

inspirational. Of course, that was always well after dinner service. I think I went there for lunch for a work thing once.

22. It's a good thought, but a different event - not as easy to get to know DUers

I hardly know at all....but am open to other views here. I am pining for a pint of Young's Double Chocolate - so I will be at Tylers.....

to show up early it's an easy walk.

40. Leaving Raleigh in about 10 min - wearing jeans, green canvas long sleeve shirt,

off-white North Face hat....probably will be too cool for outdoors, will aim for a table for 10 or so inside...shouldn't be too crowded.

Great conversations...great folks! Just loved seeing all of you again who are familiar faces, and meeting those that were new to me.

I loved the idea of getting as many of us together on election night as possible.....let's start tossing ideas on where!
